Angel Theme Baby Shower
Angels historically serve as guardians and messengers. They are symbolic of divine awareness, love, purity, faith, courage and compassion. If you are in charge of decorating for your friend's baby shower or your godchild's baptism, consider these clever ideas for incorporating angels into the theme.
Innocent Angels on the Babe's Invitation
Angels are seen as being innocent, heavenly and pure. Babies are as close to perfect as human can be, and that makes angelic in a very special way. Start sharing the angel theme from the first moment of the party by choosing beautiful invitations featuring angels. The soft images and beautiful angels will help you set the theme for the party. Consider framing one of the exquisite invitations as a gift for the mother-to-be. It can be used at the party as an elegant centerpiece near the seat of honor.
Choose Heavenly Colors
The fluffy white of angel wings will be the dominant color for your decorations. If the gender of the baby is known, then take inspiration for accent colors from the sweet baby shower invitations you chose. If not, choose pastel green or yellow to highlight the colors. Put white helium balloons on the back of the mother's chair, and include a few groupings of balloons in empty corners to dress up the space. When you run streamers around the room, mix white with your pastel accents and twist them together. A few stars purchased from the craft store can also be used to continue the heavenly theme through the room.
Transform a Cup of Tea or Cocoa
Delight the guests and make every drink more amazing by turning a simple mug of tea or coffee into something heavenly. Make cookies shaped like angel wings. Before baking the cookies, open a slot in the edge of each wing. When they are finished cooking, sprinkle them with sugar and hang them on opposite sides of a coffee mug.
Fluffy Wings for Goodie Bags
Every good baby shower needs games, and you want to carry the theme through the games and even the prizes. When putting the gifts in bags, add a three-dimensional touch by buying little craft wings at the store. Choose wings with fluffy feathers for a soft touch that will be reminiscent of gentle angel wings looking over the precious arrival.
Every good baby shower has games, and you can carry the theme into the games. Look online for angel baby shower games like the Angel lyrics game. Guests can work alone or in teams, and they have ten minutes to fill in the lyrics for a song chosen ahead of time. Include an answer key at the bottom of the page, and award angel cake with fruit topping to the winner.
When it's time to throw a baby shower for a dear friend or family member, maintain a consistent angel theme from the original invitations to the final party prizes and thank you cards. The mother-to-be will love the theme, and the guests will also appreciate the unique aspect of the party.
